Why Does My Poop Smell Like Weed

If we are honest, your poop can smell like anything. Your poop will smell like different things depending on what you’ve ingested and also on the health of your digestive system. 

So, if you have recently lit one up with your buddies, you may find your poop smells like marijuana.

Why Does My Poop Smell Like Weed But I Don’t Smoke?

There is no defined reason as to why your poop might smell like weed if you don’t smoke, but there are some answers. If you eat edibles, then you are still taking in the cannabis even if you are not smoking it, which will make your poop smell like weed. 

However, if you have never had marijuana in any form, it can simply be from foods in your diet which have created the smell. Although it is very unlikely that this would happen.

Why Does My Poop And Pee Smell Like Weed?

Around 65% of marijuana that enters your system will be excreted when you relieve yourself. This means that when you go to the restroom after you have had weed either smoking it or in edibles, it is totally likely that your poop and your pee will smell like marijuana. 

Similarly, your sweat can also have the same odor as well. 

Is It Normal For Poo To Smell Like Weed?

Why Does My Feces Smell Like Weed?

The most likely reason that your feces will smell like weed is due to edibles and your body digesting them. Edibles much like any other food need to be digested. However, depending on how edibles are made, they might not digest well. 

If they are not, then there will be remnants of the cannabis when you poop.

We cannot tell you that weed does make you poop, but we can tell you that weed does have a laxative effect, so it can get things moving. 

However, much like smoking cigarettes and ingesting nicotine, it can make you want to poop. If you woke up in the morning and had a cigarette or a joint, you will probably find that your bowels move a little faster than if you didn’t. 

My Poop And Farts Smell Like Weed

You will probably find that your farts smell like weed if your poop does. If you ingest marijuana, your body will try to get rid of it, like it does anything else we are not typically meant to ingest. (This is the same for unhealthy foods.) 

So, your farts and your poop, or even your pee may smell like weed after using.

Does Weed Make You Poop Better?

Weed can make you poop better. If you are constipated and usually have trouble getting things moving down there, it can surely make you poop better. However, if you usually have normal and regular bowel movements, it could have a more… liquid effect.

Does Weed Make Your Poop Green?

Weed can make your poop green, but so can many leafy vegetables as well. Marijuana is not the only thing that can turn your poop green, there are many foods that can. If you use edibles and then eat a salad, be surprised if your poop ISN’T green, in fact. 

Why Does Marijuana Smell Like Feces?

Not all marijuana will smell like poop, some will though, it just depends on the strain. However, if it does smell like feces, it’s probably best to avoid it. Typically, most people will say that marijuana smells like skunk, and not poop. 

To Conclude

Weed ingestion is the main use for your poop to smell like weed. However, if you are saying my poop smells like weed, but I don’t smoke, take a look at your diet, or maybe seek out a doctor. Do not forget edibles can also have this effect.

I am not a doctor, I am a nutritionist – but I have struggled with digestive issues all my life.
Saying that – you should always consult with your doctor, reading stuff online can be helpful, but these are only just suggestions on what might be going on with your body –  if you ever have these symptoms, please consult with your docotr.
